If you already have the RRDs module installed (see the later sections below), then you can install the RRD::Simple module using the following commands in order:
perl Build test
perl Build install
RRD::Simple requires the RRDs module (a part of RRDtool) to be available in the Perl @INC path. RRDtool can be downloaded from http://www.rrdtool.org or http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/.
In RRDTool version 1.0.x, the RRDs module is located in the "rrdtool-1.0.xx/perl-shared/" directory. In version 1.2.x, it is located in "rrdtool-1.2.xx/bindings/perl-shared/".
tar -zxf rrdtool-1.x.xx.tar.gz cd rrdtool-1.x.xx ./configure && make && make install # cd perl-shared # Version 1.0.x cd bindings/perl-shared # Version 1.2.x make clean perl Makefile.PL && make && make install echo "/usr/local/rrdtool-1.x.xx/lib" >> /etc/ld.so.conf ldconfig
More recent versions of RRDtool will attempt to compile and install bindings for TCL, Python and Ruby. If you do not need nor want to compile these bindings, you should change the ./configure command as follows:
./configure --disable-tcl --disable-python --disable-ruby
If you are installing RRDtool from source under RHEL, you will probably need to install the following development RPMs before following the instructions above:
zlib-devel libpng10-devel libpng-devel libart_lgpl-devel
You may also want to optionally install these development RPMs if you wish to compile and install the RRDtool bindings for TCL, Python and Ruby:
tcl-devel python-devel ruby-devel
Run apt-get as root or with sudo as shown here to install the rrdtool and librrds-perl packages:
sudo apt-get install rrdtool sudo apt-get install librrds-perl
Run yum as root or with sudo as shown here to install the rrdtool and rrdtool-perl packages:
